This video was been much easier to understand than Camdem Scene 1, maybe that´s the reason for not have transcripts. However, I enjoy videos like Camdem Scene 1, it´s like a challenge in my way to improve my english skills, since that kind of videos use a more natural english, close to the english used for native speakers.

is it correct to say "What time do you start working?"


Hello mancini2,

Yes, you can say that. Using 'working' implies a focus on the actual action of working. If you're simply asking what time a person's workday begins, then 'work' would be better.

Hi Kirk!
Please correct me Sir. Can we say 'Rob explains question forms and expressions people use when they go ( go on, go to) shopping' ?. My suggestions are in the square brackets. Thank you.

Hello Akbar Safi,

Actually, just 'go shopping' is the best form here! 'go' is followed by lots of verbs in the -ing form (e.g. 'go swimming', 'go running', 'go shopping', etc.) and no preposition is used in these cases, unless you wanted to specify the place: e.g. 'go shopping at Camden Market', 'go shopping in London'.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

I got your points. Thank you Sir!

Where is the transcript? Please show me. I really need it. Thanks you
